Celebrating the most popular papers from 2022

As we count down to 2023, we’re celebrating the top 10 most popular articles of the year according to Altmetric.

22 December 2022

‘This year our journal papers were downloaded over 40 million times!’

10. Do monkeys get drunk? 

This paper from Royal Society Open Science shows that spider monkeys regularly consume fermenting fruit, backing up the hypothesis that as humans we inherited a taste for alcohol from our primate ancestors. The research is the first to demonstrate that wild primates enjoy alcohol as a part of their natural diet, in the form of fermenting mango-like fruits.

9. Facemasks can reduce severity of COVID-19

This research from Interface developed a model to investigate COVID-19 ‘variolation’ - an incidental, but potentially beneficial, form of immunization achieved by inhaling smaller doses of the virus than would be inhaled without a mask. The model suggests effective masking could drastically slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the prevalence of severe cases.

8. Could melting glaciers cause future pandemics?

These findings from Proceedings B suggest that as global temperatures rise due to climate change, it becomes more likely that viruses and bacteria locked up in glaciers could reawaken and infect local wildlife. The research investigated how climate change might affect spillover risk by examining samples from the Arctic landscape of Lake Hazen.

7. Does time spent playing video games impact well-being?

Major health bodies and national governments have made extensive policy decisions to address their potential risks, but current evidence tells us little about the links between video gaming and well-being. Research  in Royal Society Open Science addresses this lack of supporting data by studying a large sample of players to try to determine the impact of video gaming on players’ well-being.

6. Tree rings offer insight into destructive radiation storms

This Proceedings A paper has applied cutting-edge statistics to data from millennia-old trees to find out more about radiation ‘storms’. Researchers reconstructed the global carbon cycle using tree ring radiocarbon data - the results of this modeling gave researchers an extremely detailed picture of a number of radiation events. The research suggests that, based on available data, there's roughly a one percent chance of another radiation storm occurring within the next decade.

5. Kent was home to some of Britain’s earliest humans

This paper in Royal Society Open Science presents details of the first modern excavation and dating of artefacts discovered at Fordwich. These discoveries offer insight into the presence and behaviour of early humans in southern Britain and highlight the importance of Fordwich as an archaeological site.

4. What does successful reforestation look like?

While the main measurement used for many reforestation projects is the number of trees initially planted, this research from Philosophical Transactions B shows that many of these trees are not surviving long-term. This research is the first to bring together data to evaluate the long-term outcomes of restoration projects.


3. Ankylosaurs used their tail clubs to battle each other

This paper from Biology Letters has found new evidence for how armoured dinosaurs used their iconic tail clubs. The remarkable fossil has spikes that appear to have been broken and re-healed whilst the dinosaur was still alive. These injuries are thought to have been caused by a strike from another ankylosaur’s massive tail club, suggesting that these dinosaurs had complex behaviour, possibly battling for social and territorial dominance.


2. Discovery of world’s largest plant

This research from Proceedings B tested the DNA from meadows of ribbon weed seagrass in the shallow waters of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area in Western Australia. The results were extraordinary: it was all one plant. One single plant has expanded over a stretch of 180 km making it the largest known plant on Earth.

1. Can mushrooms communicate with one another?

Finally, the most popular paper of 2022 comes from Royal Society Open Science . Mathematical analysis of electrical signals fungi send to one another has identified patterns that hold a striking structural similarity to human speech. The research shows that these electrical signals often occurred in clusters which resemble a human vocabulary of up to 50 words.

Must read: the 100 most cited AI papers in 2022

Updated: Mar 8

Who Is publishing the most Impactful AI research right now? With the breakneck pace of innovation in AI, it is crucial to pick up some signal as soon as possible. No one has the time to read everything, but these 100 papers are sure to bend the road as to where our AI technology is going. The real test of impact of R&D teams is of course how the technology appears in products, and OpenAI shook the world by releasing ChatGPT at the end of November 2022, following fast on their March 2022 paper “Training language models to follow instructions with human feedback”. Such fast product adoption is rare, so to see a bit further, we look at a classic academic metric: the number of citations. A detailed analysis of the 100 most cited papers per year, for 2022, 2021, and 2020 allows us to draw some early conclusions. The United States and Google still dominate, and DeepMind has had a stellar year of success, but given its volume of output, OpenAI is really in a league of its own both in product impact, and in research that becomes quickly and broadly cited. The full top-100 list for 2022 is included below in this post.

top research papers 2022

Using data from the Zeta Alpha platform combined with careful human curation (more about methodology below), we've gathered the top cited papers in AI from 2022, 2021, and 2020, and analyzed authors' affiliations, and country. This allows us to rank these by R&D impact rather than pure publication volume.

What are some of these top papers we're talking about?

But before we dive into the numbers, let's get a sense of what papers we're talking about: the blockbusters from these past 3 years. You'll probably recognize a few of them!

1️⃣ AlphaFold Protein Structure Database: massively expanding the structural coverage of protein-sequence space with high-accuracy models -> (From DeepMind, 1372 citations) Using AlphaFold to augment protein structure database coverage.

2️⃣ ColabFold: making protein folding accessible to all -> (From multiple institutions, 1162 citations) An open-source and efficient protein folding model.

3️⃣ Hierarchical Text-Conditional Image Generation with CLIP Latents -> (From OpenAI, 718 citations) DALL·E 2, complex prompted image generation that left most in awe.

4️⃣ A ConvNet for the 2020s -> (From Meta and UC Berkeley, 690 citations) A successful modernization of CNNs at a time of boom for Transformers in Computer Vision.

5️⃣ PaLM: Scaling Language Modeling with Pathways -> (From Google, 452 citations) Google's mammoth 540B Large Language Model, a new MLOps infrastructure, and how it performs.

1️⃣ Highly accurate protein structure prediction with AlphaFold -> (From DeepMind, 8965) AlphaFold, a breakthrough in protein structure prediction using Deep Learning. See also " Accurate prediction of protein structures and interactions using a three-track neural network " (from multiple academic institutions, 1659 citations), an open-source protein structure prediction algorithm.

2️⃣ Swin Transformer: Hierarchical Vision Transformer using Shifted Windows -> (From Microsoft, 4810 citations) A robust variant of Transformers for Vision.

3️⃣ Learning Transferable Visual Models From Natural Language Supervision -> (From OpenAI, 3204 citations) CLIP, image-text pairs at scale to learn joint image-text representations in a self-supervised fashion

4️⃣ On the Dangers of Stochastic Parrots: Can Language Models Be Too Big? -> (From U. Washington, Black in AI, The Aether, 1266 citations) Famous position paper is very critical of the trend of ever-growing language models, highlighting their limitations and dangers.

5️⃣ Emerging Properties in Self-Supervised Vision Transformers -> (From Meta, 1219 citations) DINO, showing how self-supervision on images led to the emergence of some sort of proto-object segmentation in Transformers.

1️⃣ An Image is Worth 16x16 Words: Transformers for Image Recognition at Scale -> (From Google, 11914 citations) The first work showing how a plain Transformer could do great in Computer Vision.

2️⃣ Language Models are Few-Shot Learners -> (From OpenAI, 8070 citations) GPT-3, This paper does not need further explanation at this stage.

3️⃣ YOLOv4: Optimal Speed and Accuracy of Object Detection -> (From Academia Sinica, Taiwan, 8014 citations) Robust and fast object detection sells like hotcakes.

4️⃣ Exploring the Limits of Transfer Learning with a Unified Text-to-Text Transformer -> (From Google, 5906 citations) A rigorous study of transfer learning with Transformers, resulting in the famous T5.

5️⃣ Bootstrap your own latent: A new approach to self-supervised Learning -> (From DeepMind and Imperial College, 2873 citations) Showing that negatives are not even necessary for representation learning.

Read on below to see the full list of 100 papers for 2022, but let's first dive into the analyses for countries and institutions.

The most cited papers from the past 3 years

When we look at where these top-cited papers come from (Figure 1), we see that the United States continues to dominate and the difference among the major powers varies only slightly per year. Earlier reports that China may have overtaken the US in AI R&D seem to be highly exaggerated if we look at it from the perspective of citations. We also see an impact significantly above expectation from Singapore and Australia.

To properly assess the US dominance, let's look beyond paper count numbers. If we consider the accumulated citations by country instead, the difference looks even stronger. We have normalized by the total number of citations in a year, in order to be able to compare meaningfully across years.

The UK is clearly the strongest player outside of the US and China. However, the contribution of the UK is even more strongly dominated by DeepMind in 2022 (69% of the UK total), than in the previous years (60%). DeepMind has truly had a very productive 2022. Looking at the regions, North America is leading by a large margin while Asia is slightly above Europe.

Now let's look at how the leading organizations compare by number of papers in the top 100.

Figure 4. Source: Zeta Alpha

Google is consistently the strongest player followed by Meta, Microsoft, UC Berkeley, DeepMind and Stanford. While industry calls the shots in AI research these days, and single academic institutions don't produce as much impact, the tail for these institutions is much longer, so that when we aggregate by organization type, it evens out.

Figure 6. Source: Zeta Alpha

In total publication volume, Google is still in the lead, but differences are much less drastic compared to the citation top 100. You won't see OpenAI or DeepMind among the top 20 in the volume of publications. These institutions publish less but with higher impact. The following chart shows the rate at which organizations manage to convert their publications into top-100 papers.

top research papers 2022

Now we see that OpenAI is simply in a league of its own when it comes to turning publications into absolute blockbusters. While certainly, their marketing magic helps a lot to propel their popularity, it's undeniable that some of their recent research is of outstanding quality. With a lower paper volume but impressive conversion rate is also EleutherAI, the non-profit collective focusing on interpretability and alignment of large Language Models.

The top 100 most cited papers for 2022

And finally, here is our top-100 list itself, with titles, citation counts, and affiliations.

We have also added twitter mentions, which are sometimes seen as an early impact indicator, however the correlation so far seems to be weak. Further work is needed. Here you have the list for the year 2020 and for 2021 (as tsv files).


To create the analysis above, we have first collected the most cited papers per year in the Zeta Alpha platform , and then manually checked the first publication date (usually an arXiv pre-print), so that we place papers in the right year. We supplemented this list by mining for highly cited AI papers on Semantic Scholar with its broader coverage and ability to sort by citation count. This mainly turns up additional papers from highly impactful closed-source publishers (e.g. Nature, Elsevier, Springer and other journals). We then take for each paper the number of citations on Google Scholar as the representative metric and sort the papers by this number to yield the top-100 for a year. For these papers we used GPT-3 to extract the authors, their affiliations, and their country and manually checked these results (if the country was not clearly visible from the publication, we take the country of the organization’s headquarters). A paper with authors from multiple affiliations counts once for each of the affiliations.

Updates 2023/03/07

- Update the 2022 list with the following papers:

- Emergent Abilities of Large Language Models (74 citations)

- Self-consistency improves chain of thought reasoning in language models (71 citations)

- Why do tree-based models still outperform deep learning on tabular data? (60 citations)

- DeiT III: Revenge of the ViT (44 citations)

- Fix missing EleutherAI as the 2nd best organization in terms of conversion rate

- Added links to the full 2020 top-cited paper list and 2021 top-cited paper lists

- Add counts by region plot

- Fix missing countries and organizations in the 2022 list

This concludes our analysis; what surprised you the most about these numbers? Try out our platform , follow us on Twitter @zetavector and let us know if you have any feedback or would like to receive a more detailed analysis for your domain or organization.

You’ve most certainly experienced this situation once: You take a great picture with your friend, and someone is photobombing behind you, ruining your future Instagram post. Well, that’s no longer an issue. Either it is a person or a trashcan you forgot to remove before taking your selfie that’s ruining your picture. This AI will just automatically remove the undesired object or person in the image and save your post. It’s just like a professional photoshop designer in your pocket, and with a simple click!

This task of removing part of an image and replacing it with what should appear behind has been tackled by many AI researchers for a long time. It is called image inpainting, and it’s extremely challenging...

You've most certainly seen movies like the recent Captain Marvel or Gemini Man where Samuel L Jackson and Will Smith appeared to look like they were much younger. This requires hundreds if not thousands of hours of work from professionals manually editing the scenes he appeared in. Instead, you could use a simple AI and do it within a few minutes. Indeed, many techniques allow you to add smiles, make you look younger or older, all automatically using AI-based algorithms. It is called AI-based face manipulations in videos and here's the current state-of-the-art in 2022!

Neural Rendering. Neural Rendering is the ability to generate a photorealistic model in space just like this one, from pictures of the object, person, or scene of interest. In this case, you’d have a handful of pictures of this sculpture and ask the machine to understand what the object in these pictures should look like in space. You are basically asking a machine to understand physics and shapes out of images. This is quite easy for us since we only know the real world and depths, but it’s a whole other challenge for a machine that only sees pixels. It’s great that the generated model looks accurate with realistic shapes, but what about how it blends in the new scene? And what if the lighting conditions vary in the pictures taken and the generated model looks different depending on the angle you look at it? This would automatically seem weird and unrealistic to us. These are the challenges Snapchat and the University of Southern California attacked in this new research.

We’ve seen image inpainting, which aims to remove an undesirable object from a picture. The machine learning-based techniques do not simply remove the objects, but they also understand the picture and fill the missing parts of the image with what the background should look like. The recent advancements are incredible, just like the results, and this inpainting task can be quite useful for many applications like advertisements or improving your future Instagram post. We also covered an even more challenging task: video inpainting, where the same process is applied to videos to remove objects or people.

The challenge with videos comes with staying consistent from frame to frame without any buggy artifacts. But now, what happens if we correctly remove a person from a movie and the sound is still there, unchanged? Well, we may hear a ghost and ruin all our work.

This is where a task I never covered on my channel comes in: speech inpainting. You heard it right, researchers from Google just published a paper aiming at inpainting speech, and, as we will see, the results are quite impressive. Okay, we might rather hear than see the results, but you get the point. It can correct your grammar, pronunciation or even remove background noise. All things I definitely need to keep working on, or… simply use their new model… Listen to the examples in my video!

Do you also have old pictures of yourself or close ones that didn’t age well or that you, or your parents, took before we could produce high-quality images? I do, and I felt like those memories were damaged forever. Boy, was I wrong!

This new and completely free AI model can fix most of your old pictures in a split second. It works well even with very low or high-quality inputs, which is typically quite the challenge.

This week’s paper called Towards Real-World Blind Face Restoration with Generative Facial Prior tackles the photo restoration task with outstanding results. What’s even cooler is that you can try it yourself and in your preferred way. They have open-sourced their code, created a demo and online applications for you to try right now. If the results you’ve seen above aren’t convincing enough, just watch the video and let me know what you think in the comments, I know it will blow your mind!

How do autonomous vehicles see?

You’ve probably heard of LiDAR sensors or other weird cameras they are using. But how do they work, how can they see the world, and what do they see exactly compared to us? Understanding how they work is essential if we want to put them on the road, primarily if you work in the government or build the next regulations. But also as a client of these services.

We previously covered how Tesla autopilot sees and works, but they are different from conventional autonomous vehicles. Tesla only uses cameras to understand the world, while most of them, like Waymo, use regular cameras and 3D LiDAR sensors. These LiDAR sensors are pretty simple to understand: they won’t produce images like regular cameras but 3D point clouds. LiDAR cameras measure the distance between objects, calculating the pulse laser’s traveling time that they project to the object.

Still, how can we efficiently combine this information and have the vehicle understand it? And what does the vehicle end up seeing? Only points everywhere? Is it enough for driving on our roads? We will look into this with a new research paper by Waymo and Google Research...

As if taking a picture wasn’t a challenging enough technological prowess, we are now doing the opposite: modeling the world from pictures. I’ve covered amazing AI-based models that could take images and turn them into high-quality scenes. A challenging task that consists of taking a few images in the 2-dimensional picture world to create how the object or person would look in the real world.

Take a few pictures and instantly have a realistic model to insert into your product. How cool is that?!

The results have dramatically improved upon the first model I covered in 2020, called NeRF. And this improvement isn’t only about the quality of the results. NVIDIA made it even better.

Not only that the quality is comparable, if not better, but it is more than 1'000 times faster with less than two years of research.

Last year I shared DALL·E, an amazing model by OpenAI capable of generating images from a text input with incredible results. Now is time for his big brother, DALL·E 2. And you won’t believe the progress in a single year! DALL·E 2 is not only better at generating photorealistic images from text. The results are four times the resolution!

As if it wasn’t already impressive enough, the recent model learned a new skill; image inpainting.

DALL·E could generate images from text inputs.

DALL·E 2 can do it better, but it doesn’t stop there. It can also edit those images and make them look even better! Or simply add a feature you want like some flamingos in the background.

We’ve all heard about GPT-3 and have somewhat of a clear idea of its capabilities. You’ve most certainly seen some applications born strictly due to this model, some of which I covered in a previous video about the model. GPT-3 is a model developed by OpenAI that you can access through a paid API but have no access to the model itself.

What makes GPT-3 so strong is both its architecture and size. It has 175 billion parameters. Twice the amount of neurons we have in our brains! This immense network was pretty much trained on the whole internet to understand how we write, exchange, and understand text. This week, Meta has taken a big step forward for the community. They just released a model that is just as powerful, if not more and has completely open-sourced it.

BlobGAN allows for unreal manipulation of images, made super easily controlling simple blobs. All these small blobs represent an object, and you can move them around or make them bigger, smaller, or even remove them, and it will have the same effect on the object it represents in the image. This is so cool!

As the authors shared in their results, you can even create novel images by duplicating blobs, creating unseen images in the dataset like a room with two ceiling fans ! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it is one of, if not the first, paper to make the modification of images as simple as moving blobs around and allowing for edits that were unseen in the training dataset. 

And you can actually play with this one compared to some companies we all know! They shared their code publicly and a Colab Demo you can try right away. Even more exciting is how BlobGAN works. Learn more in the video!

Gato from DeepMind was just published! It is a single transformer that can play Atari games, caption images, chat with people, control a real robotic arm, and more! Indeed, it is trained once and uses the same weights to achieve all those tasks. And as per Deepmind, this is not only a transformer but also an agent. This is what happens when you mix Transformers with progress on multi-task reinforcement learning agents.

Gato is a multi-modal agent. Meaning that it can create captions for images or answer questions as a chatbot. You’d say that GPT-3 can already do that, but Gato can do more… The multi-modality comes from the fact that Gato can also play Atari games at the human level or even do real-world tasks like controlling robotic arms to move objects precisely. It understands words, images, and even physics...

Make-A-Scene is not “just another Dalle”. The goal of this new model isn’t to allow users to generate random images following text prompt as dalle does — which is really cool — but restricts the user control on the generations.

Instead, Meta wanted to push creative expression forward, merging this text-to-image trend with previous sketch-to-image models, leading to “Make-A-Scene”: a fantastic blend between text and sketch-conditioned image generation.

What do all recent super powerful image models like DALLE, Imagen, or Midjourney have in common? Other than their high computing costs, huge training time, and shared hype, they are all based on the same mechanism: diffusion. Diffusion models recently achieved state-of-the-art results for most image tasks including text-to-image with DALLE but many other image generation-related tasks too, like image inpainting, style transfer or image super-resolution.

Panoptic scene graph generation, or PSG, is a new problem task aiming to generate a more comprehensive graph representation of an image or scene based on panoptic segmentation rather than bounding boxes. It can be used to understand images and generate sentences describing what's happening. This may be the most challenging task for an AI! Learn more below...

Text-to-Image models like DALLE or stable diffusion are really cool and allow us to generate fantastic pictures with a simple text input. But would it be even cooler to give them a picture of you and ask it to turn it into a painting? Imagine being able to send any picture of an object, person, or even your cat, and ask the model to transform it into another style like turning yourself into a cyborg of into your preferred artistic style or adding it to a new scene.

Basically, how cool would it be to have a version of DALLE we can use to photoshop our pictures instead of having random generations? Having a personalized DALLE, while making it much more simple to control the generation as “an image is worth a thousand words”. It would be like having a DALLE model that is just as personalized and addictive as the TikTok algorithm.

Well, this is what researchers from Tel Aviv University and NVIDIA worked on. They developed an approach for conditioning text-to-image models, like stable diffusion I covered last week, with a few images to represent any object or concept through the words you will send along your images. Transforming the object of your input images into whatever you want!

We’ve seen AI generate text, then generate images and most recently even generate short videos, even though they still need work. The results are incredible when you think that no one is actually involved in the creation process of these pieces and it only has to be trained once to then be used by thousands of people like stable diffusion is. Still, do these models really understand what they are doing? Do they know what the picture or video they just produced really represents? What does such a model understand when it sees such a picture or, even more complex, a video?

Last week Meta published the Make-A-Video model that I covered, which allows you to generate a short video also from a text sentence. The results aren’t perfect yet, but the progress we’ve made in the field since last year is just incredible.

This week we make another step forward.

Evelien Urbanus, Hanna Swaab, Nicole Tartaglia, Constance Stumpel & Sophie van Rijn

Published in The Clinical Neuropsychologist

“This study is one of the first studies that directly illustrates the relationship between language and behavioral outcomes in children with SCT. Our results stress the importance to closely monitor pragmatic language in addition to structural language in clinical care of children with SCT, as pragmatic language abilities could serve as an early marker for children at risk for developing behavioral problems.”

Published in Annals of Medicine

“The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic has not been completely controlled. Although great achievements have been made in COVID-19 research and many antiviral drugs have shown good therapeutic effects against COVID-19, a simple oral antiviral drug for COVID-19 has not yet been developed. We conducted a meta-analysis to investigate the improvement in mortality or hospitalization rates and adverse events among COVID-19 patients with three new oral antivirals (including molnupiravir, fluvoxamine and Paxlovid).”

7. Lessons learned from the fifth wave of COVID-19 in Hong Kong in early 2022 

Pak-Hin Hinson Cheung, Chi-Ping Chan & Dong-Yan Jin

“Before the fifth wave, Hong Kong had managed to remain free of local cases of COVID-19 for almost 100 days, ascribed to the enforcement of moderate non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) and stringent border control measures, just to be balanced with relatively normal economic activities and social lives. […] From 31 December 2021 to 23 March 2022, the ongoing fifth wave of COVID-19 in Hong Kong has claimed 6356 lives.”
